I just bought a new (to me) CSY
44 without a chartplotter
. On my previous boat I used a Garmin
498 and liked it.
For the next year or so, I will just be doing coastal cruising. Then we hope to retire and go to the Caribbean
I am learning
PC based navigation
using Polar View but still would like to have a chartplotter
$$ of course is an object. I was wondering if I might be happy purchasing
"last year's model" instead of the newest and best?
For example, if I stay in the Garmin family
, I notice some great deals on used 2006c/2010c models.
The boat I bought currently has:
- Garmin GPS 126 2000
- Furuno 24 mile radar
- Mast Mounted Radome
- Alpha 3000 Autopilot (1997)
- Garmin Fishfinder 160 Blue
Any thoughts or suggestions?
I appreciate your help!
